I wrote a blog post on ‘Self-publishing In India’ for (an ‘Alliance of Independent Authors’ blog). Click here for the link.


Just got done with Sandra Brown’s Envy. What a marvel of a plot! Even if you’re not into Women’s Fiction, are turned off by anything non-literary (a.k.a   commercial fiction), this is worth a read. Completely gripping page turner, one twist after another, and more marvelously – from the point of this writer – no loose ends left untied.

Talk By Orhan Pamuk

April 17, 2011 Leave a comment

Harry Kreisler’s interview of Orhan Pamuk at UC Berkeley’s Institute of International Studies. Video’s a little long, but well worth it.

Another Turkish author who comes highly recommended – Elif Shafak. Her Bastard of Istanbul is sitting on my sidetable, next in line to be read.

SPOTLIGHT: Judith Quaempt’s Story

Since this is a blog on writing, I figured I’d occasionally post links to short stories or books that speak to me, for whatever reason. Today I’d like to spotlight (with the author’s permission), Judith Quaempt’s short story in The Shine Journal.

I loved the descriptions, the setting, the story itself. Click here to read this wonderful story.
